Kent State Summer Term 

The United States Bureau of Education places Kent State at the top when 
listing the Teacher Training Schools of this nation on a basis of summer term 
attendance. The National Educational Association Journal using another basis 
for classification places Kent State fourth among Teachers Colleges. Isn't this 
evidence enough that Kent State ranks as one of the great among colleges of 
its kind? 

When one considers that Kent State is only a dozen years old the natural 
questions are: Why? And How? 

The answer to one question is 

PRESIDENT McGILVREY. 

The answer to the other is 

PRESIDENT McGILVREY. 

A college never rises higher than the idealism of the man or woman in charge 
of administration. Kent State from its beginning has had the guiding hand of one 
who dreams great dreams and then makes them real. 

When President McGilvrey came to Kent there was only a wood-lot and 
quietly grazing cattle where now we see the great circle of buildings, but his vision 
was great enough to see beyond the present, so he engaged his faculty and estab- 
lished the college. Classes were held in the nearby towns in churches, in halls, 
in school houses and private homes. By the time the first building was up there 
were twice as many students as it would hold. This was again true of the second 
building and the third — has always been true and is still true. Tents are used 
to take care of the over-flow. 

Kent State at present is not only serving the thirty odd counties in the 
northeastern part of the state but is reaching out to serve indirectly all the states 
in the Union. Our graduates carry the Kent idea abroad through the land and 
wherever they go there is established a center from which new students come. 

Indications at present promise three thousand students on the campus in June. 
They will come to Kent State because the college is pledged to a democratic policy 
based on sound educational theory. The college is pledged to service and the 
spotlight is on the student rather than the subject matter. Kent State produces 
superior men and women.

Our Faculty 

Hail to the leaders of men, 

The sovereigns by grace of God, 

Who flinch not, nor fear not to venture 

Where none before them have trod." 

Hail to the leaders here. 

The teachers who have impressed 

Upon our minds, upon our lives, 

That naught should be, if not the best. 

Our faculty, our friends. 

Whom inspirations give 

To follow daily in their paths. 

And helpful lives to live. 

Our teachers, leaders, and our guides 

Through perilous ways and steep. 

Over the rough and difficult paths 

You have guided our faltering feet. 

Taking the Master Teacher 

As the pattern of life and thought. 

Exemplified in deed and word. 

We to Him have been nearer brought. 

Showing us how and pointing the way 

To paths as yet untrod. 

Encouraging, assisting, helping all 

To live faithful to our fellow man, and 

To our Heavenly God. 

The lessons you have left impressed 

Upon our memory's scroll. 

Will live e'en after life hath ceased, 

As ages onward roll. 

And when, in after years we turn 

The page of memory o'er 

We'll look upon your faces here, 

And hope to see once more 

The college hill, the campus green, 

The buildings white and tall. 

But most of all, we'll hope to greet 

Our Faculty — each and all.

The Cruise of Class Twenty-five 

'Twas in the fall of nineteen twenty-one that we saw the good brig "Shaw" 
lying in the stream with her "Blue and Gold" flying at the bow. This was the year 
that we, eighty-six in all, set sail from the port of Ignorance upon the sea of 
College Life. We were all registered as steerage passengers and were assigned 
the lowest deck, under the stewardship of Mr. Rumold. The passengers of deck 
two and three, of course, looked down upon us and often taunted us about our 
freshness, but nevertheless we held our heads high and quite attracted attention in 
"Clarence" that year. In June, we sighted the Submarine Zone, which spoke 
"danger." Torpedoes, or in other words, low grades, were very much to be feared 
but most of us came through without being struck, while a few went under. 

After this thrilling and hair-breadth escape, the good ship "K. S. C." weighed 
anchor near the Island-de-while-away. Here some spent three delightful months 
of rest and play while the rest sailed on through the summer and returned to the 
island to rest during the month of September. In October, our boat heaved anchor 
and away we started. Mr. Ivins, our new steward, assigned us to the second deck 
and consequently we felt very lordly; very often, I fear, making fun of the poor 
Freshmen below. This voyage passed off unusually well. There were many good 
times, dances, parties, and entertainment and last but not least the college play 
"Mrs. Bumpsted Leigh." As 'twas the custom in June, we had to weather a very 
mild tempest (grades) and a few were washed overboard. 

The next year was our long anticipated one, when we would be shipped with 
the first class passengers and have the third deck as our quarters. October the 
second was the date of our first get-together party. Then there was Campus night, 
the Pop Entertainment, Colonial Party, Homecoming and many other pleasant af- 
fairs. The year was closed with the Commencement and our reception to the 
Seniors. 

After a vacation spent on the mountain of Recreation, the good brig "Kent 
State," started on her course. We are now registered as Seniors, which, of course, 
means our last voyage. As we pursue our journey, we are thinking of the many 
changes which we have observed in our Alma Mater. We have seen the enrollment 
of students greatly increased each year; there have been new departments estab- 
lished to meet the growing needs of Kent State and new members have been added 
to the Faculty. Many changes have taken place about the campus and buildings. 
We are proud of the newly and beautifully decorated auditorium, and are glad that 
the change took place while we, as Seniors, are here to enjoy it. The campus has 
been beautified by the addition of many trees and much shrubbery which were 
started last spring. We note, too, with pride, the excellently lighted college drive; 
at night this addition makes it a pleasure to view the campus. New pavements 
have been laid which adds to our convenience and comfort. Then the building 
program that has been in progress this year has been a source of inspiration for 
it speaks plainly of the rapid growth of Kent State. The new gymnasium and 
wing to Lowry Hall are nearing completion and they will supply a need which for 
a long time has been in evidence. 

We have spent four delightful years of sailing and will always look back upon 
them as the most enjoyable in our lives. Ahead of us lies commencement and the 
sad farewells from our beloved bark "Kent State"; then comes the long weary 
journey to our destined city.

Class Poem 



The sun is in the west, the purple shades on high 

Reflect the dying embers — the night is drawing nigh. 

A little while we fain would pause beside the way. 

Musing the while, and lingering at the fading of the day. 

Methinks I see a happy throng awinding up the hill 

With purpose, energy, and strength, with a determined will. 

A will to do, a will to be, a will to conquer all. 

To be "a hero in the strife", to go where duties call. 

We'll follow them as through the halls they passing to and fro 

To library, class-room, gym, and shop, upstairs and down they go. 

They delve in history, music, math, languages, art, and song, 

And revel in the classics old, and pause to muse thereon. 

Their books they con the pages o'er, and study to discern. 

The great, the good, the pure, the true, striving alway to learn 

The way of life, the way to serve, to be of help to man. 

True to their God, their school, their all, serving whom they can. 

But 'tis not always they can stay, their duties call them forth. 

Out in the busy marts of life they must go to prove their worth. 

To others they leave the school they love, though friendship's 

ties still bind, 
Commencement but marks another round in the ladder they have 

climbed. 
Just as the sun in its onward course dispels the night and brings day 
The class of '25 will attempt ignorance to banish, joy to infuse, 

to spread light and love on its way. 
The light of knowledge, of truth sincere, the way of life as is told 
In the Book of Life where the Greatest Teacher His marvelous 

lessons unfold. 
Not in books alone have they learned to live, but in their 

calling, they 
The little child, the needy one, the discouraged day by day. 
Will endeavor to help, to teach, to lead on to paths as yet untrod 
Pointing the way, increasing faith in brotherhood and God. 

Ella M. Ingersoll, '25. 



What Has Kent State Meant To Me? 

It has meant the pathway which will lead me on into fields yet to be discovered. 
It has caused me to look at this old world as a golden opportunity in which to accomplish 
magic. Just as in the days that are past, when my heart was torn many times by the 
tragedies of life, so again will my heart be rent if I cannot accomplish a bit of this magic 
in my own little part of the world. In my studying here, I have found a satisfaction in 
living, a longing to go on and on, ever striving for that perfection no mortal ever attains; 
it has meant growth and breadth of mind which will reach out unto all people; what Kent 
State has meant to me has been so much that words fail to express one half that is in my

Degree Courses 

By Lester S. Ivins 
Chairman Committee Four-Year College Courses 



All four-year College courses listed in our catalog lead to the B. S. in Education 
degree. This degree carries with it a State High School Provisional four-year certificate 
for those with less than fifty months of teaching experience and a life certificate for those 
with more than fifty months of teaching experience. When the life certificate is granted, 
the teaching experience must be rated as successful by those who know of the applicant's 
work. 

Four-year College courses are increasing in numbers in all Colleges where teachers 
are being trained, due largely to the fact that higher standards are required than formerly 
of High School teachers, also to the fact that more elective courses are being offered 
in the schools. 

Many states are now requiring teachers in Junior High Schools as well as teachers 
of Senior High schools to hold a four-year degree. This results in an increased demand 
for High School teachers. Several school boards in Ohio have placed provisions in the 
teacher's contract which provide for an increase in salary according to the experience of 
the teacher and to the amount of College credit possessed by the individual. Such 
provisions encourage those with a two-year diploma to work toward the degree. 

Superintendents of Schools in many school districts are preparing to expand their 
High School courses as soon as finances permit. This probably will mean a much greater 
demand for High School teachers in the future than we have had in the past. 

The four-year course in Physical and Health Education and the four-year course 
in Commercial Education will mean much to Kent State in the future. The addition of 
these departments permits students to secure extra minors or additional majors which 
were not possible before these courses were added. The fact that students secure these 
extra majors or minors during the four years they are here gives them a certificate of 
wider validity than otherwise would have been possible. 

The degree class this year promises to be the largest in the school's history. 
At the time this is written our records show about fifty persons are eligible for the degree 
provided they continue the work through the summer quarter. We do not know at this 
time just how many of those now teaching will enter the summer quarter, June 15th. 

Those persons who have secured the degree from Kent State in the past have 
made good. For this reason we are having an increased number of calls for High School 
teachers each year. Considering all that has been said above, it would seem highly 
desirable for those who find it possible to do so to plan to take the four-year course.

Department of Extension 

By Lester S. Ivins^ Director. 

Kent State has conducted extension work for teachers in service since 1912. 
This has provided an opportunity for teachers to learn while they earn. A very 
large per cent of our graduates in the two-year courses and the four-year courses 
have earned a part of their credits through extension work. 

The year is divided into two terms: the first, beginning September 15th, and 
the second, beginning February 9th. About one thousand students, on the average, 
are enrolled in extension courses each year. 

Teachers in service, desiring an extension instructor, make application to the 
Extension Department of the College for an extension instructor to be sent to a 
particular center. 

Twenty-five persons in village and city districts, or fifteen in rural districts 
are required for the organization of a class. The course to be studied is decided 
at the first meeting of the group. The class meets once a week for twenty-two 
weeks during the first term, and once a week for eleven weeks during the second 
term. 

Sufficient work is assigned by the instructor at each recitation to consume the 
time of the student for about one hour each night during the week. The recitation 
held once a week covers all the work studied during the week by each student. The 
first term of twenty-two weeks gives four (4) term hours credit to those who 
successfully pass the examinations. The student taking the second term secures 
two (2) term hours credit for his work if it has been satisfactorily done. 

Each student pays $6.50 to the College to assist in paying the cost of sending 
the instructor. Many school districts require their teachers to take some type of 
professional work each year to make them eligible to the increase provided in the 
salary schedule. 

The State Department of Education permits a student who graduates from a 
two-year course to secure eighteen (18) term hours, and a student who graduates 
in the four-year course to secure thirty-six (36) term hours in extension since 
September 1st, 1921. 

Kent State has been given credit for being one of the first teachers' Colleges 
in the United States to successfully conduct extension work. President McGilvrey 
organized the work here before any buildings were erected.

The Library 



The right book for the right person at the right time. 

Our library has outgrown its present quarters in the administration building just 
as it outgrew its first location in Merrill Hall. There is not room in the stack room to 
shelve new books and many new books are needed; there is not room where books may 
be made ready for the shelves without their being lifted and shifted unnecessarily; there 
is not room in the reading room for students to work comfortably; there are no rooms 
where groups may meet for consultation. This condition is known in the legislative halls 
at Columbus and we feel sure that by the time the Chestnut Burr is published, it will be 
announced that a sufficient appropriation has been made by the legislature of Ohio for 
an adequate library building at Kent College. 

The new departments which recently have been added to the school have meant 
new departments added to the library and we now have several shelves of books and a 
number of special magazines particularly adapted to the work of the health department 
and to that of the commercial department. The extension of the department of education 
has meant the addition to the library of many books and magazines in ethics and in 
psychology which were not needed before; the growth of the physical education depart- 
ment with its instruction for coaches in athletics has meant a new type of books added 
to the library. 

The service of the library is not limited to students of college grade but is given 
also to pupils of the high, elementary and primary grades. Below the fourth grade the 
critic teachers come to the library and select books adapted to the little people, at least 
one book for each child, and take the books to the school room where the children may 
use them with the teacher's help. In the fourth grade and all grades above the fourth 
the children come directly to the library and choose books for their own reading with 
the help of the librarians. This means that we need a large library of children's literature, 
both for the children and for those who are studying to teach children. Our encyclo- 
pedias, indexes and other library tools are needing to be replaced by new copies and nev/ 
editions, reference books are needed and, if we are fulfilling our highest purpose, training 
citizens to use their leisure time, we need many books on various subjects to meet this 
demand, that students may be inspired with such an appreciation and love of books that 
their own lives may be enriched and that they may through their schools encourage a 
better book-loving world. 

Some of our hopes for the future are : 

A library building, of adequate size and adequately equipped for efficient work, 
with well lighted, comfortable rooms for reference work and other types of reading and 
for organization of the books; 

Libraries for each grade in the elementary school; 

Model noncirculating libraries for primary, elementary and high schools for the 
use of student teachers and teachers in the field; 

Plenty of books for reference work; 

Traveling libraries for students in absentia; 

A library staff of sufficient number to keep the library organized to date and to 
give the best possible service to students and to faculty members.

Recorder Oscar Le Beau Stark County 

Student Treasurer Arthur R. Gaffga Summit County 

Faculty Advisor Prof. D. W. Pearce Portage County 

Among the various student organizations at Kent State College is a live, growing 
Young Men's Christian Association. Although this is a comparatively young organization, 
it promises to be one of the most dynamic forces for good on the campus. 

The discussion group has considered such subjects as : "What Shall I Do with 
the Master?" and "The College Man's Religion". An intensive study of such books as 
"Jesus and His Cause", "The Manhood of the Master" and "Jesus' Measure of a Christian", 
has occupied the study hour. A short period of recreation has usually followed the 
study hour. 

The organization has as its basis a program of social service and the establishment 
of Christian standards and convictions. It seeks to stimulate a well-rounded development 
of mind and body and strives to make the will of Christ effective in human society. 

The Y. M. C. A. has cooperated with its sister organization, the Y. W. C. A. in a 
number of activities. Whether it be active field work or a joint dinner, splendid team- 
work has been displayed. 

Students should avail themselves of the opportunities presented by such organiza- 
tions. The Y. M. C. A. extends the hand of Friendship to all Men Students.

Off Campus Women's Club 

By RUTH MAE SHIBLEY 

The women students of Kent State who do not live in either of the dormitories, 
belong to the Off Campus group. Within this group is the Off Campus Women's Club, 
which is a thoroughly organized sisterly group. Sisterly, because of its hospitality to 
new girl students, and its wholesome companionship among all the members thereof. 

On each registration day, the club gives a tea to which all of the new off campus 
girls are invited. In addition, the club arranges, during the year, for a certain number 
of activities — mostly social. It is hoped that certain social functions, by reason of their 
popularity in the past, will become annual affairs in the club calendar, especially the 
Off Campus Club Banquet at Home Coming, which in nineteen hundred twenty-four was 
a marked success, because of the large attendance of the alumnae and the undergraduate 
members. Other events of the past year were: a May Day breakfast in the wood, that 
proved a most happy occasion for the club members; a party on May ninth; a club 
supper, on July fourteenth, in the college dining hall; a tea tendered the club, on July 
twenty-second, by Dean Verder, Advisor of the Club; a Halloween party on October 
seventeenth; an afternoon card party on December third; a subscription dance on January 
twenty-fourth, nineteen hundred twenty-five; and a theatre party to Akron, to see "St. Joan," 
on February fifth. 

Furnishings for the club rooms in Science Hall are bought with funds raised by 
"benefits" given by the club. Those for the last year were: A benefit picture, on March 
twentieth: ice-cream sold on "County Night", July ninth; and a Pop Entertainment, 
December eleventh. 

A tea dance and a benefit picture are two events being planned to close the Social 
Calendar for the winter t;rm of nineteen hundred twenty-five. 

The Off Campus Alumnae held a reunion in Cleveland at the Hotel HoUenden, 
October twenty-fourth, in connection with the Kent State luncheon at that time. To this 
reunion the club sent its president. Miss Helen Blake. 

The club is steadily gaining in popularity. Each year a larger number of students 
apply for membership. The present membership is one hundred and ten.

HELPFUL HIXTS FOR PRACTICE TEACHERS 

Never let the critic teacher talk back to you. 

Dismiss class at least five minutes before time. 

Do not have your lesson plans ready. They "will keep. 

Let the pupils chew gum; it "will aid in loosening their jaws. 

Never be dependable, for the critic teacher does not advise it. 

Always leave your galoshes open so the students can hear you coming. 

When teaching, come late for class. 

Bring your dog or any other pet animal to class. When you are tired of playing 
■with it, one of the members of the class will entertain it for you. 

Act wiser than you are. 

Never assign too long lessons, you may not have time to prepare them. 

Always begin to talk with a "why" or "well," use plenty of "ands". It makes a 
good impression.

Kent State High School 

Here's a cross-word puzzler for you! Find something that means Kent State High 
in three letters. P-E-P! That's us! Drop in some time and look us over, and go 
away with a feeling of pride that you belong to a college that can boast of such a worthy 
high school. We have the Kent State spirit in our very bones and it bursts out on every 
occasion. From the first day in Kindergarten to the last day in Junior High we were 
taught "Kent first" and by the time we reached Senior High, we had become true patriots 
to the blue and gold. You hear our voices at every game, you see our faces at every 
play, and you feel our presence in every act; but still some of you don't know us. For, 
in the words of an old song: 

We have a dear young High School 

Of which we're very proud, 

But it belongs in Merrill Hall 

So in Science isn't allowed. 

So let's get acquainted. This is going to be a different kind of introduction from 
any you ever had before, because we are going to give just our side of it. 

We don't have to tell you much about our athletics, for we practiced with the 
College in football and feel pretty well acquainted. Our team didn't win the Trolley League 
banner (yes, we admit some one was better for once) but we did give it a merry chase. 
We made the winners earn it and, as a special reward, won the inter-scholastic champion- 
ship. We put one man on the All-Trolley League Team for three successive years and 
no other school can say that. 

Basketball? We aren't exactly sure. But we do know that we are proud of the 
fine showing the College is making and promise to do just as well, for — excuse us if we 
do a little better — we're after that banner. 

Ever notice how the Auditorium hums when the High School comes to assembly? 
That's because we get so much and such good training. We have a Girls' Glee Club and 
every Thursday morning finds us warbling in the music room. Yes, just across from 
Mr. Stopher's office. Poor man! If you think our Glee Club isn't worth looking at as 
well as listening to, just buy an Annual and feast your eyes. 

Have you noticed how congenial the girls are? And that's because we have a Girls' 
Friendly Club. It promotes good feeling among the members and also provides an organiza- 
tion to buy dictionaries for the assembly room. Honest, they did! Every month there 
is a G. F. party and the boys call them "hen parties" and other "fowl" names, but I hope 
you noticed how they "flocked" when we gave one for them. There may have been one 
boy who wasn't there, but I can't remember who he was. 

And while parties are in the air, you may as well hear about the Senior girls' 
organization, called the F. F. F. Club. In 1920 a club called the A. A. A. was organized 
and each year it has been handed down until now we have the Frivolous, Flippant, Flappers 
— and card parties, and slumber parties, and weiner roasts, and sleigh loads. And EATS, 
and EATS, and EATS. 

We haven't given you the impression of too much social activity and not enough 
intellectual, have we? Every day we work hard and a glance at the average report card 
will show well the result. We have teachers who are friends as well as instructors, and 
make school life interesting and unusual. Some of them we share with other departments 
but most of them are our own individual property. Every class from Mr. Boulet's French 
to Miss Herriff' s Geometry is different and original. 

We have plenty of talent over here, too. We have future orators, singers, authors, 
musicians, coaches, and teachers. We will be the pride of Kent some day. Already 
some of our members have been heard over the radio from a popular broadcasting station. 

We have a paper, too. It's printed by the printing class and issued twice a month. 
The idea is to publish up-to-date news and keep up the school spirit. The name is T. N. T. 
and maybe you didn't know it. but once every year the College sets a match to the T. N. T. 
and has a grand explosion called the Red Flame. 

We don't want to tell you too much about ourselves for we know you are already 
determined to buy one of our Annuals and' find out more about this unusual organization 
over in Merrill Hall. Yes, just come in some time and see us — and leave an order. No 
table will ever be complete without the Hi Life and the Chestnut Burr for 1925. 

Neva Skinner, 1925.

HONEY IN FAIRY GARDENS CULLED 

Several months ago the Editor of The Chestnut Burr asked me to write my impres- 
sions of Kent. I promised. Not being of an original turn of mind, I decided to imitate 
the method of The Literary Digest and simply collect a few choice gems from America's 
foremost literary men and women. 

I agreed to have my copy in before the first of June and forthwith dispatched 
notes to H. L. Mencken, Harold Bell Wright, Andy Gump, and other rare spirits, asking 
each to send me by Special Delivery his opinion of the Kent State Teachers College. 

I waited three months and a day for replies. On the 20th of May I realized that 
I had on hand exactly two answers. One of these was from a poet who punches a 
wicked Corona. He informed me that he would be happy to comply with my request 
at his regular rate, namely, two dollars a word including prepositions. The second, a 
prose penman, stated that his contract with Breezy Stories forbade his making any literary 
efforts in other directions. 

There was but one thing left for me to do. You guessed it. Miss Garberson, 
write 'em myself. Here's what my modest and unassuming Underwood has done : 

EDGAR LEE MASTERS 

I was the village cut-up of Spoon River; 

My Uncle Bim proclaimed me, "Beautiful but your I. Q. is 37". 

My father thought, "Bowling Green will cure her". 

My mother insisted, "She must go to Kent!" 

They compromised, and I went to Kent. 

I registered for Education 13A. 

I took Library Economy. 

I passed Mathematics 12. 

I copied 65,467 words in my History 11 note-book. 

I joined the Off Campus Club and went to the Methodist Sunday School. 

I read Hall's Life Problems and Chums; 

1 memorized Clark's Interpretation of the Printed Page. 

Two years after my Uncle Bim pronounced me a dumb-bell, 

The faculty of Kent pronounced me cultured, 

And bestowed upon me a diploma. 

Did I return to Spoon River? 

Not on your sweet life : 

I started teaching school at Silver Lake Junction. 

NINA WILCOX PUTNAM 

Hot Bozo! I've just had a commencement announcement from a girl-friend who 
has had the nerve to go to and through Kent for two whole annums; and believe me, 
Madam Secretary, from what she writes me she has passed through with some Ritzy 
experiences. 

Susan, which is her maiden name, has went to Kent mostly on acct. of her 
sheik of a husband having ran away to Pittsburg with some flapper from Akron and she 
having to settle with the furniture co. for the March payments on their Louie Cans 
parlor-suit. 

Well, Susie seeing she was in danger of becoming a flat-tire, decided she'd turn 
a deaf ear to the apple-sauce dispensed by the red-hot papas of the town and take up 
some genteel work like rearing the tender plants and teaching the young ideals where 
to shoot. 

To finish what I begun to remark, the factly at Kent certainly made poor Susanna 
toil like a gallus-slave. Her Pa and Ma uster say that Sue couldn't be drove to look at 
no literature but Elinor Glin and Snappy Stories. 

But of course they're dead wrong now, Susie says, for after oncet you get started 
on the rt. road to culture, it aint so fierce as them babies in Rosemere tries to make you 
believe. 

Sue thinks she must of got some of her lines crossed in the more refined subjects 
like elocution, for her profs, has sure give the poor girl fits; but next month she's 
through, she says, and I'm right here to tell the cockeyed terra cotta that (1) one artistic 
teacher is all set for the practice of the broadening aims of education, and et cetera.

AMY LOWELL 

You big sprawling houses. 

Lying on a hillside — 

Like a lazy school-boy 

Stretched out on 

The green turf — 

Watching the clouds sail by. 

You look dull and sleepy, 

This bright June morning; 

Your squares of panes 

Gape and blink at me 

Through your filmy and flickering trees. 

Ha! Ha! Ha! 

Your shafts of limestone. 

And your Ionic capitals, 

Like fat bishops with their miters. 

Ha! Ha! Ha! 

Why do I laugh? 

(Note by Editor: — Well, Amy, since you have asked the question, now answer it.) 

ANONYMOUS IN TRUE STORY 

Certainly, truth is stranger than fiction. This fact impels me to write my story 
as a warning to others. 

I was only seventeen when I first came to Kent State College. I knew little of 
the World and still less of Life. I occasionally read the Akron Beacon-Journal and the 
Plain Dealer. 

I was innocent, in fact unsophisticated. I thought LaFoIlette was the French 
general who stabbed Napoleon at the battle of Bull Run. I earnestly believed that boot- 
leggers were found only in drugstores. 

I had never been considered bold in Loraine. In fact the most daring thing I 
attempted in my three years at Kent was to read the last 45 pages of Eddy's Vitamine 
Manual. 

Now I am asking myself. Why should I thus be tortured? Why should this awful 
question confront me? Why should I be compelled to answer? Other girls escape. 
Why not I ? 

Fate seems cruel. The inevitable hour is sure to come when my husband will 
demand the truth. Some day he will know that / took Home Eco. 20'.!! 

Robert Stuckart. 

WHAT WE LIVE FOR 

Just what do we live for? What is our ultimate aim and purpose in life? It 
is certainly worth thinking about, and it need not, necessarily, be a dreary thought. 

"I live for those who love me" cries the child, in his unbiased innocence. The 
child, in his happy ignorance, not yet, having been obliged to resort to meaningless con- 
ventions and mannerisms, lives only to love and to be loved by his family and friends. 
So do we, dear friends, if we only would stop to think of it. What would life be, if it 
were not for the friendships and dear ties and interests which we enter into as we go along? 

It has been said that our success is measured by the number of friends whom we 
have that respond when we are in trouble. This must certainly be true, in a measure. 
Our friends are the most priceless possessions which we have on this earth. 

Then, why not let us glorify friendship? The human brotherhood is not nearly 
to its highest state of development. If only we could have the wonderful social condition 
existing in which we always feel sorry for and aid the friend in need, admire and glory 
in the friend in prosperity, and always feel a close companionship for the friend at all times. 
Would it not be indeed wonderful? And it is not at all impossible. 

Right here at Kent College would be an ideal place to foster the spirit and to 
cherish it. We do now, in a very sweet way. but it could be enhanced, greatly. Let 
us do it. Let us extend a hand to everybody in good cheer and note the results. Here's 
to a better and bigger friendliness at Kent College. 

Katharine Robinson.

ONE DAY IN THE LIFE OF A COLLEGE STUDENT 

Ting-a-ling-a-ling! One eye opens slowly. Who in the world can be telephoning 
at this hour? It must be in the middle of the night. Ting-a-ling-a-ling! Both eyes come 
open this time. Oh, it is the alarm clock under my roommate's pillow instead of the 
telephone. That means that it is six thirty o'clock anyway. 

I wonder if the room is cold and one foot creeps cautiously from under the bed 
clothes. The window is open and the air is frosty so I decide to wait and see what my 
roommate will do. Perhaps, if I lie real quiet, she will think that I am still asleep and 
will venture out first and close the window. 

Some time passes, until finally neither can longer stand the feeling that we must get 
up, and both decide to do so at the same time. 

Dressing does not take much time when one knows that there is no time to spare, 
and soon we are on our way to breakfast. One step on the icy walks and we are reminded 
that "Haste makes waste" and we know that we cannot hope to make good time this 
morning. Why didn't we think of this and get up earlier? 

After eating breakfast, we rush up to the library to do a little reference work 
which must be done before the first class. 

Once in the library, we procure our books and sit down to study, only to find 
that it is nearly class time. Surely that clock must be fast! We must have more time 
than that, but we gather up our books and start for Merrill Hall. 

The work there is interesting, and time passes so rapidly that we are startlsd 
when the gong warns us that only five minutes of the period are left. 

No assignment has yet been made for our next lesson. Doesn't the instructor 
realize that the next class is in a room on the third floor at the opposite end of Science 
Hall, and that a solid glare of ice intervenes? At last the assignment is made and we 
hurry out, only to encounter a long procession of grade pupils just returning from Science 
Hall. Finally the way is clear, and we reach the next classroom before the door is 
closed after all. 

The period passes quickly and closes on time giving us ample time to get our 
note books and material for Library Economy. Here we take notes and instructions until 
our heads whirl and we go from class in a dazed condition, wondering if we will ever 
be able to do all that we have been told to do and when we shall find time to do it. We 



[132] 



now realize that it is lunch time and that we must try our luck on the ice again if we 
are to have anything to eat. 

At "The Cozy Corner" we wait in line until our turn comes. By that time we are 
ravenously hungry and select a much larger lunch than we had intended to get. 

Back in school during the one o'clock class period we realize the mistake we made 
when we ate so much for our lunch and for some time we have to struggle with the 
drowsy feeling, which at times seems certain to overcome us. 

Next comes a vacant period, which is usually spent in the library, where we pre- 
pare for the next class. 

Three o'clock comes and we stand in front of the door of our classroom, waiting 
for the class that is already there to come out. By this time we are getting tired and we 
stalk into the room with rather a dejected air and a shiver, for the room is always cold. 
Here we are instructed how to manage unruly children and create and maintain interest 
in the classroom. Time passes and we find ourselves dismissed, only to don our 
gymnasium suits for an hour of brisk work in the gymnasium. 

Five o'clock finds us free to go home, and we ponder over what books we shall 
need to take with us. 

Dinner over, we sit down and try to compose our tired minds enough to write 
a composition on "One Day in the Life of a College Student." What can we tell that 
will be of interest? 



Rhoda Sykes. 



TO A DEPARTED ONE 



Dear faithful one, my heart now sighs for thee! 

How like a mother thou didst watch my sleep! 

When tossing on my pillow, thou didst keep, 

A kindly vigil, bending over me; 

And wishing, most of all, bad dreams to flee 

Thou ganst me a fairy slumber deep. 

And lulled me into rest till dawn did creep, 

Over the field and fair retreating lea 

Over the top of yon advancing hill; 

When I arose refreshed and charmed the while 

By tree and knoll and many a sloping mile. 

And breathed a prayer, submitted to thy will, 

O God, — within the heavens and earth arrayed — 

Who givest all thy children blessed rest. 

A Sonnet by Alice Ann White. 

EXTRACT FROM A DIARY 
June 16, 1925 — Commencement Night 
Dear Little Book:— 

It's all over, Little Book! The night 1 have worked and waited for these twelve 
long years has come — and gone. All the excitement has passed. Music and speeches are 
over, congratulations extended and accepted, farewells said and the "Class of '25" exists 
only in spirit. 

It made its exit as many other classes in the past have made theirs, and as many 
in the time to come will make theirs, yet just because it was Our Class — that made 
the difference. It has been a time of merry-making, pleasure, and gayety, yet underneath 
it all, there seemed to run a minor chord of sadness. 

I wonder what it is, Little Book, that tinges each Comm.encement with sadness. 
Is it because we know our places will be taken by others? Is it because we must leave 
those places where many of our happiest hours were spent, or where our sweetest memories 
have their settings? Is it because we know that friendships must be broken, that have 
been four years in the making? Or is it because we realize that we face a new life — 
a life quite different from the old one led in the gay care-free high school days? 

Our lives have been given into our hands for making; we may build of them 
what we will. I wonder, Little Book, what my future will be. As I sit here, the words of 
the Valedictorian come back to me, "The only asset that a man can carry with him at 

(1.53] 



the close of his life, is that asset which inheres in character and in individuality. There 
is no greater wealth than that of a fine personality. These are the greatest riches, com- 
pared with which, money wealth is poverty." After all, what is money, power, and 
position if individuality, character and personality are lacking? 

Again, I hear her plead, "Let us resolve to be square, to ourselves, to our country, 
and to our God." This, I think, Little Book, cares for everything. To be true to yourself, 
you must necessarily be true to your country and your Maker. If this is practised in 
everyday life, "Why," as our prophetess asked, "should we worry about the future, for 
the future will soon be present and the present will soon be past?" 

May God help me, Little Book, to be square — to myself, to my country and to 
my God. 

M. L. R. 

Our campus is a blithesome sprite 
So fair is she by day and night. 
The seasons feel her beauty's spell 
And do their best to dress her well. 

Spring hides a robe of palest green 
Beneath the dogwood's gorgeous screen. 
And grows a wreath of flowers fair 
To twine within our loved one's hair. 

Summer dots her dress with flowers 
Where drowsy bees may hum for hours, 
And ferns provide a dainty lace 
To hide and yet reveal her grace. 

Autumn makes a simple gown 
Rich with her own exquisite brown. 
And with bouquets of scarlet leaves 
The rustic plainness she relieves. 

The winter night weaves a party dress 
That glitters with sheer loveliness 
For balls of light above the snow 
Spread sparkling radiance far below. 



Our campus is a blithesome sprite 
So fair is she by day and night 
That though the Seasons did their best 
God must have smiled to do the rest.

A SOLILOQUY FOR THE OTHER FELLOW OR WHAT'S A COLLEGE FOR? 

Yon can get a much better perspective of the other fellow, if you are a pace or 
two behind him than you can by pushing in ahead of him when he is standing courteously 
in line. 

Sometimes the opportunity comes to line people up when they are conspicuous 
by their absence. One almost decides that "First come, first served" is a souvenir of the 
nineteenth century. 

The other fellow's materials cost money. Can he furnish you day after day, week 
in and week out, and fail to recognize a "sponge"? It is a far cry from friendly inter- 
change of courtesies, and never being provided with tools. 

The reverberating echoes of a beautiful hillside will demonstrate to you your voice 
capacity, and, oh, how much mercy will be shown the walls of the rooms and the ear 
cavities, by such a thoughtful retirement! 

Jack Jones may be a brilliant student, but that does not signify his desire to work 
over-time looking up notes which you wer? too lazy to jot down when they were given

in class time, or to answer questions for which you were too indolent to find the answers. 
In most cases of "getting by" (such a clever stunt!) somebody does the "getting". 

Table manners are terrible things to carry around. They are better worn out 
than when allowed to rust out. The hostess would appreciate a few. 

Homes are opened as a privilege to students. You are not buying for a few 
dollars a week the exclusive right to the conveniences and customs of that home to 
command and change at your will. Friendships formed outside the campus arena are 
lasting pleasures of college life. Why not make them mutual pleasures? 

There is one thing which we can not "get by", crowd out, command, "sponge", or 
change — the view and gorgeous sunsets seen from the campus hilltop, which inspire us 
to believe that, after all, the other fellow is worth considering, and just needs a guiding 
"hand upon his shoulder in a friendly sort of way". We all possess a hand and shoulder.

THE USE OF THE MARGIN 

"What do you do when you've nothing to do?" It would be interesting to compile 
a list of answers that Kent Staters might give to this question. 

One group of students might be quick to enjoin, "When does that time come?" 
They are continuously plodding along life's way without treating themselves to one bit 
of recreation. Something is wrong; either their work is not managed properly or their 
burden is too heavy. Neither cause is excusable. No matter how much work a person 
may have to do, he can never afford to go a long time without rest and recreation. He loses 
promptly in efficiency all he seeks to gain by over-time. Mother Nature sets aside a 
whole winter of rest for the plant world; certainly man ought not deprive himself of 
recreation. 

The majority of folks would have abundant time for recreation if they could only 
be made to see it and improve it. But how many of them do? Some folks are always 
pressed for time, while others who accomplish an equivalent amount of work, find time 
for many additional pleasures. It is the blending of these recreational moments with 
work well done that makes a college career fuller, richer, and more complete. How much 
more profitable it would be if the hours, spent in idle conversation, in reading nonsense 
stories, in attending cheap "movies", in playing pool, and in other wasteful ways, were 
devoted to useful recreation! Lincoln improved his leisure time at hard and diligent 
study. The world knows the result — and may profit by his example. 

Every man should have a hobby; that is, something which he likes to do, and at 
which he is reasonably expert. It may be as difficult as his regular occupation, but it 
will be different, and prove a source of pleasure and recreation. It may add to his 
income, it may increase his circle of friends; it will at least break the dull, monotonous 
grind of never-ending work. 

Our modern inventions and conveniences have opened a wide field of recreations, 
hitherto unthought of. With them has come the problem of selection. Our savage fore- 
fathers, who dwelled in the trees, and ate of the fruit that grew wild, had none of these 
modern complexities; nor did they need them. We labor, we toil, we sweat, and in the end, 
our greatest, and perhaps only advantage over primitive man, is this choice of recreation. 

How inevitably important, then, that we school ourselves in the proper use of 
this margin of time. We are prone to fix our eyes too rigidly on the material things 
of life and fail to see the higher and nobler possibilities. The spice of life is recreation 
and whether our lives will be registered under Success or Failure will be determined, not 
by how long, but by how well, we have lived — ^by the use we have made of the margin. 

Oscar LeBeau. 

GETTING EVEN 

Jack Dunn, at the age of twelve, had written poetry and plays that have probably 
never been equalled in crudeness. He confidently believed that some day he would 
startle the world by producing an epoch making play, at least epoch making in his life. 
His little neighbor, Jane, likewise believed she was going to surprise the world with her 
acting in the future. They had visited the same ingenious gypsy who had prophesied these 
things for them. This prophecy coupled with a touch of talent gave both Jane and Jack 
unlimited confidence and daring. There is genius in confidence and daring. 

It was well for Jane and Jack that they both believed in themselves, for no one 

[135] 



of the amused villagers of the simple western town believed there was any startling 
latent power in either. Each of the children, eager for ascendancy had no respect, but 
only the utmost contempt for the other's ambitions. The contrariety was truly mutual. 
But even with the intense antipathy each felt for the other there seemed to be an indefinable 
attraction which brought them together. They had tried many times to produce one of 
Jack's crude playlets, but such extreme inharmony always resulted that each attempt 
speedily melted away. Jane could not endure Jack's literary creations and Jack, perhaps 
somewhat humiliated by her cutting sarcasm of his great efforts, ridiculed her mad en- 
deavors at impressive acting. If either had adored the other or had been as sensitive as 
their more tender and affectionate school-mates they would probably never have reached 
their teens for they would long before have been crushed by cruel word thrusts. It was true 
no adoration for the other was felt by either, but their promising natures were too fine not 
to suffer from sensitiveness and yet too proud to reveal it. 

Then a change came in Jane's life. Her mother had died when she was a baby 
and her father decided to send her to her aunt in the East. Jane was somewhat depressed 
to leave her school-mates but she was confident of the future and thrilled with the rain- 
bow promises of youth. On the morning of her departure her school friends and her 
staunch enemy were at the station to see her off. When all the boys and girls of the 
undesigning little town except Jack, had said goodbye to the adored and adoring Jane, 
Jack expressed his by shouting to her, as she sat in the train, some verse which he had 
labored on since 5:30 o'clock that morning: 

"Of all the girls I ever knew 
The homeliest of them is you. 
Your hair is red and tangled up. 
Your freckled nose is too abrupt, 
Your petticoat's another mess. 
It always hangs below your dress. 
Your stockings always are a sight 
And need some shifting to the right. 
Right now you're trying to conceal 
With soot, that hole around your heel." 
You t'nink you'll be an actress! hah! 
You'd better stay home with your pa." 

This created a dramatic ending to Jane's going away. Words failed to express 
her indignation. Custard pie was dear to Jane but pride was dearer still. "Someday I'll 
get even with you for that," she cried as she sacrificed the choice desert of her carefully 
packed lunch to fling it straight into the face of the tantalizing barefoot poet. The train 
began to move. The detested Jack looked up into Jane's little unbeautiful face, blotched 
with freckles and tears and said a final goodbye by vigorously pulling of her long red 
curls as they dangled along with her out of the window. 

After ten years the glorious hopes of Jane's youth were a long way on the path 
of realization. One night, during her early career a hopeful but unknown dramatist was 
madly pacing the floor of his room in a New York hotel in nervous anticipation of the 
first presentation of his play that evening. If realization were consistent with the writer's 
great efforts and hopes, his success would be considerable. A winsome little actress of 
twenty-two years was the star of the play. She recognized its greatness and realized 
the big opportunity that was hers. The actress was Jane. She was calm and confident. 
She would not fail. She knew. Days of earnest toil were behind her and gave her the 
utmost confidence and faith. Two great desires for success, concentrated on the same 
design were at work. Jane's and the playwright. Intense desire means concentration and 
is a potent prayer. If Jane had known the intense desire of the other, she might "have 
remembered what the poet wrote and said to herself before the curtain parted: 

"Have I not prayed with faith today 
O Lord, has he not prayed? 
Are not two prayers a perfect strength 
And shall we feel afraid?" 

The first week the play was an unbelievable success. The second and third and so 
on. It ran for five months amidst the wild applause of the public. The dramatist fell 
madly in love with the artist who was making his play live and she fell as desperately 
in love with the author who had made possible the revelation of her talent. To her, he 



[136] 



was simply Jack, the dramatist who had become famous in one night. To him, she was 
only Jane, the actress whom critics prophesied would be a second Bernhardt. 

One night after the first act, the dramatist rushed up from the audience to Jane 
who was sitting in her dressing room with a wistful look upon her face. "Jane", he 
exclaimed, "as I watched you tonight, a little verse came to my mind? Let me say it to 
you dear. We have just time." And this is the verse he said to her : 

Your acting, dear, is most divine 
O, may 1 ever claim you mine? 
Those sweet disorders in your dress 
Enhance your winsome loveliness. 
Your petticoat a peeping through 
Right now it shows an inch or two. 
How I adore your lovely hair 
The coloring is wondrous rare. 
And those stray wisps about your face 
That blow with such bewitching grace. 
That splash of freckles on your brow 
And dainty cheeks, I don't see how 
I ever loved a girl before 
Without these charms 1 so adore. 
You're dearer, Jane, to me than life, 
O, promise me you'll be my wife. 

Jane looked up into the adoring face of her lover. "Once", she said, "When 1 was 
a little awkward girl in a simple western town a barefoot boy composed some lines to me 
scorning the same things you adore. "Now", she smiled, "1 feel compensated for all 1 
suffered then. Say those things again to me." He looked at her in wonder. 

"Are you the little Jane who flung the pie into my face and vowed some day she 
would get even?" he said. She looked at him dumbly for a moment. "Yes, I am she. 
And you — are that Jack?" 

They stood looking at each other in awed wonder for another moment. Then Jane 
went up to him and said, "Jack 1 promise to be you're wife, but say, I did get even with 
you, didn't I ?" 

That night the second act began a half an hour late. But afterwards the critics did 
not only believe Jane would be a second Bernhardt. They knew.

OUR CAMPUS ON A WINTER NIGHT 

Some time ago I had the pleasure of viewing Kent State College on a frosty winter 
night. Mother Nature had covered the campus with a downy coverlet of snow. Every 
branch and twig wore a feathery crest. The air was crisp and clear. The stars winked 
gleefully from the cloudless sky. 

As the moon came up over the rim of trees on the low-lying hills in the distance, 
the beauty of the quiet winter night almost took my breath away. As I watched it, 1 felt 
like a youngster watching for the first time the incredible magic of a conjurer. Slowly, 
as the moon rose higher, the shaft of shimmering light advanced over the snow. For sheer 
beauty, the snow, glittering like a carpet of diamonds under the magic touch of the moon- 
beams, far surpassed any picture mortal man can paint. The lights around the campus 
drive shone like huge Oriental pearls. In the background rose the college buildings, silent 
and majestic, casting deep purple shadows in strong contrast to the iridescent radiance 
of the moonbeams. A few lights shining from the windows of the dormitories gave a 
living touch to an otherwise cold but beautiful picture. F. Wilmot.

Should Kent State Have the Honor System? 



Positive 

Honor is a trait very much to be de- 
sired. Universally the honorable person 
is the one most admired by his fellow- 
men. The honor system of grading is a 
means of developing this trait in the stu- 
dents. It gives' them a feeling of respon- 
sibility and makes them want to prove 
themselves honest. In using this system, 
the teacher leaves the room during the 
examinations and the students are on 
their honor not to cheat. Every case of 
dishonesty is reported to the Honor Court, 
where it is tried, and a sentence pro- 
nounced. The students have no desire to 
be publicly disgraced and cheating is 
greatly diminished v^^hile a much better 
spirit exists in the classroom. 

Ruth Day. 



Negative. 

I think that Kent State should not have 

an honor system because: 

First. It should not be necessary among 
a body of persons training for teach- 
ing, they ought to have enough honor, 
if they are to teach the young of 
America, not to cheat. Their ideals 
should be high; if they are not they 
have no business in this profession. 

Second. It is as easy or easier for the 
average person to be honest with the 
teacher in the room, rather than out. 
Few people regard the teacher as a 
policeman in this age. 

Third. Few persons would report a 
cheater, no matter what anyone said 
in favor of dishonesty being "shown 
up." There is a strong instinct in 
most people to scorn a talebearer. 

Fourth. Those who would cheat with a 
teacher in the room, have no honor, 
therefore how could they be relied 
upon "when they were alone? 

Mildred Weigand. 



Neutral. 

The Honor System, in which the court 
of justice is made up of the students, 
develops honesty and responsibility, but 
in a sort of "have to have it" way. 

The pupils, being the judges and im- 
posers of penalties, make rules very strict 
and inflict the hardest kind of punishment. 
As a result of this the pupil knows that 
he will be punished if he is caught cheat- 
ing, and while under the Honor System, 
refrains from it, because of the fear oiT 
results. However, if there is ever a 
chance to cheat, and there is no possi- 
bility of punishment, the pupil takes the 
chance — especially if he is of the type 
that has few principles. In the honor sys- 
tem a pupil is guided by a group approval 
and what the group does is the proper 
thing. The attitude in a college is gen- 
erally that of being smart and seeing how 
much can be done without being punished. 
If a certain group happens to be con- 
scientious, the honor system "will work 
and everyone will want the approval of 
his fellow student. But if the group 
happens to have a majority of not too 
conscientious people, the honor system 
will not he very successful — group ap- 
proval will be away from the right thing. 

M. Condon. 



Positive 

Kent State College needs the Honor Sys- 
tem. The difficulty is in making the stu- 
dents realize the importance of being 
honorable in taking examinations. In 
some schools where the honor system has 
been, and is being used, the students hold 
the honor system as one of the traditions 
of their college, they consider being dis- 
honest, either by cheating or by failing 
to report cheating, as disloyal to the col- 
lege as anything could possibly be. 

Kent State needs some change. At the 
present time there is much need for re- 
form. No teacher can adequately "police" 
seventy-flve pupils who are seated side 
by side. As things are the student doesn't 
realize that he is stealing, that he is 
really doing something low and despic- 
able. He merely thinks that he is "put- 
ting something over" on the teacher and 
is rather proud of his success. 

"We must not expect that the introduc- 
tion of the honor system would immed- 
iately stop all cheating. There might 
even be more cheating for a time, but 
when It has become an ideal — a tradition 
of the college — then it will be effective 
and accomplish the thing that is intended. 
Mildred Nickerson. 



Negative. 

I do not believe in the honor system 
which has come to the attention of Kent 
State Officials and is causing some con- 
cern as to whether the plan be adopted 
or not. 

In my estimation and observation it can 
not be worked out to the extent that it is 
thoroughly beneficial to the welfare of the 
student. I believe a student likes to feel 
that he is being trusted by his instructors 
and colleagues without a bothersome sys- 
tem, which is liable to result in hard feel- 
ings and losing friends, especially when 
tried before a student body comprising 
the court. Even though the penalty may 
not be so great the suffering caused by 
snobbing and coolness of acquaintances on 
the part of the condemned one should be 
considered. 

I believe all management should be left 
to the instructors. 

Harriet Kennedy. 



Positive 

I have always liked the idea of a stu- 
dent being honorable enough not to cheat, 
regardless of circuinstances. However, it 
is true that there are times when even 
the most honorable will cheat a little un- 
consciously. To prevent this the Honor 
System would be a good thing. Then, 
the really reliable students would never 
cheat; they would guard against it; while 
the less reliable ones would be forced to 
"play fair". I do not like the thought of 
one student telling on another. No matter 
in what light one may look at it, it is 
not a good thing for the "tatler" or the 
one who is told upon. Must college stu- 
dents be so little as to cheat when they 
are placed on their honor not to? Will 
the teachers never be able to trust them 
completely? I think the ideal honor sys- 
tem will come to be when each student 
will realize his own responsibility, and 
work with no thought of cheating. Then 
and then only, will true honor reign in 
the classrooms.

SHOULD KENT STATE HAVE A DEBATE CLUB? 

As the story goes, Kent State had a Debate Club. I say had because it is only a 
memory to a few and an unknown fact to most of the student body. 

Being interested in debate work, I made inquiry to discern, if possible, just why 
a debating society was not a vital and permanent part of our college activity. One answer 
was that there were not enough students interested to keep a society alive. This statement 
seemed almost incredible to me. To think, that in a student body of approximately seven 
hundred students, there could be less than twenty-four people who were interested in 
debating and they are planning to become school teachers' 

As I thought the matter over, I came to the conclusion that it was not lack of 
interest altogether; but that perhaps the students had not been appealed to in the right 
way, that they regarded a debating society as a "dead" society with no "pep" or enthusiasm, 
and failed to realize the opportunity that was escaping them. 

Consider with me first how a course in Debate can be beneficial to us as students 
and prospective teachers. We are all more or less selfish; so we will consider first just 
how it will benefit us personally. We are preparing ourselves to become school teachers 
and thus to become leading factors in the community life of which we shall become a 
part. In this position, on many occasions we shall be obliged to express ourselves in 
public. If we cannot do this in a manner creditable to ourselves and to our profession, 
we shall lose our prestige; we shall lose the respect that the parents of the children we 
teach have had for us. If we cannot express ourselves, clearly and fluently, to our classes, 

[139] 



they too will lose respect for us and doubt our superior ability. In order to make our 
point of view clear, we must analyze our reasons and present them in a logical way. 
A course in Debate will help us to make a creditable speech in public, without becoming 
embarrassed, more readily than any other course. 

There is another angle that should be considered by the student who is planning 
to become a teacher of English in a high school. In most schools where there is no special 
course offered in Public Speaking and Debating, the English teacher will be asked to 
coach the debate team. If he has had no experience himself, how, then, is he going to 
help the pupil? Many superintendents consider this when selecting their English teachers. 

There are many other ways in which debate training will help us personally, but let 
us now realize just how it will help our college. We know that a school is advertised by 
the kind of students it sends out, and by the success of its athletic teams. A school may 
also be advertised by its scholastic attainments. For example, Ohio Wesleyan University 
and Bates College are noted nationally and even universally because of their success in 
debating. Ohio Wesleyan has the record of winning all debates held on their home floor 
for twenty-one years. Winning a debate is of more importance to them than winning an 
athletic contest. Can we not establish a tradition of this kind at Kent State? 

Mildred Nickerson. 

EXAMINATIONS 

In the history of education there seems to have been no type of school established 
without some form of examination. Since college examinations have been recently em- 
phasized, tests "true or false", "oral or written" and grades are topics which we discuss 
constantly; as students these things become a part of our lives and we react almost 
unconsciously at the suggestion of the words. We see the value but usually do not enjoy 
the "passing" of an examination in any subject. 

Another type of examination which is vital but which receives less attention is 
examinations for ourselves. But are they not just as essential? We are not living as 
individuals at Kent State, but help to form that group whose ideals and standards are 
making history and establishing a record which to some extent must remain permanent. 
They are significant because many see what we do, hear what we say; often our thought- 
lessness and carelessness cast a reflection on our Alma Mater. The impressions which we 
give are not always in accordance with the ideals which she holds. Examinations for 
ourselves are vastly more difficult and more unpleasant than those in college subjects. 
Plain speaking concerning our own actions may cause some embarrassment, but it is 
better than a superficial smoothing over of faults that are serious. Someone has made the 
statement, "It is better to be helped by the wounds of a friend than soothed by the false 
flattery of an enemy." Sometimes, our worst enemy is ourself, for not stopping to con- 
sider, we continue to think that what we do or refuse to do is justifiable. 

Much has been said and is being said about the spirit of our college. It is the 
time for us to prepare an examination for ourselves and to see what we can do to make 
the spirit better. It is obvious that our Alma Mater is giving us the best in all that she. 
attempts for us; she has our welfare, enjoyment, pleasure and success at heart and is 
giving a large measure of helpfulness and encouragement to us; but what are we giving 
in return? Have we forgotten that we are College Students or have we ever thought 
of it? Surely we need to question ourselves to see whether we are contributing much, 
little or nothing for the welfare of the college. Some questions we often ask are — "Can 
we not create a spirit of helpfulness and cooperation that could not be excelled by any 
other institution? Can we not have organizations to include all the group? Can we not 
have social functions that will interest all and that will give an opportunity for the entire 
student body to become better acquainted?" 

It must be remembered that creating a fine college spirit does not depend entirely 
on the faculty; it is not all their responsibility. As students we are directly responsible; 
but are we conscious of it? Whatever else characterizes us, it seems that complaint 
is a very prominent characteristic; all of us complain of the condition which surrounds 
us. What is the matter that we do not see our part of the responsibility? It is an 
interesting question to discuss, whether our surroundings are growing better or worse. Is 
it not a more profitable thing to help make them better by doing something, instead of 
merely talking about them? Olive Hisey.

Special Music Department 

The Special Music Department has been much larger this year than ever 
before. The increase has been in quality as well as quantity. 

The class work consisting of voice, piano, harmony and conducting lessons 
has been especially interesting. 

Special vocal and piano recitals in class have been enjoyable features. 

The group has provided special music numbers for various Assembly programs 
during the year. They also gave their annual spring concert and furnished music 
for Baccalaureate and Commencement Exercises. 

On February 4th a sextette of girls from the Special Music Department broad- 
cast three songs from W T A M Cleveland on the All-Kent program. 

The Senior girls have put the motto "Learn to do by doing" into practice by 
teaching music in the training school. 

The following girls comprise the group: Seniors: Alice Dixon, Helen Davi- 
son, Mildred Elgin, Elinor Grier, Katherine Green, Elene LePrevost, Isabella 
Matley, Mildred Mozena, Helen Shattuck, Esther Wilson, Mrs. Proehl, Thelma 
Proehl and Mary Helen Squires. 

Juniors: Mignonne Bryant, Catherine Clevenger, Nellie Crewson, Frances 
Eging, Helen Hippie, Abbie Morse, Anne Mylotte, Helen McCullough, Viola Parker, 
Lucille Pearce, Lavina Porter, Marjorie Richardson, Katherine Robinson, Loretta 
Ryan, Ella Springer, Margaret Stackhouse, Sarabel Thompson, Helen Thorpe, Ann- 
ette Unatin, Margaret Walker, Pearl Warner, Mae Williams, Lillian Witwer, Vereta 
Zimmerman.

The Orchestra 

Our orchestra is one of our organizations of recent years. This is the second 
year that Mr. Corlett, from Dana's Institute, Warren, has had charge of the orchestra. 
At various times during the year, members of the orchestra favor the student body 
with very lovely musical selections. 

Personnel of Orchestra: Jean Gorham, violin; Mildred Elgin, violin; Gwendo- 
lyn Drew, violin; Thelma Proehl, piano; Roy Merrell, violin; Richard Davis, cornet; 
Clark Line, saxaphone; Mignonne Bryant, violin; Lowell Van Deusen, trombone; 
Maxine Moore, violin.

Music in the Training School 

Music is taught in the training school under the efficient supervision of Miss 
Bachman. The girls in the Special Music Classes have the privilege of observing 
very interesting music in the Training School, then the privilege of putting into 
practice the methods they have learned. 

On the evening of December 17th, the children presented an operetta, "The 
Trial of John and Jane," by Protheare. It was lovely in every detail and showed 
very careful interpretation on the part of the children. In March the Junior High 
School presented "Way Down in South" and "Grandmother's Rose Jar." Both 
productions showed much skill on the part of the young people. 

Each spring a music recital is given to the student body — showing the progress 
of the children as they go on with their work in the grades. 



Kindergarten Course 



This course has been offered this year for the first time. Miss Ida Sirdefield 
of Akron has conducted this work and results have been so satisfactory that it 
will be carried on in the future. The girls of the Senior music class were given the 
teacher's method course, and also observed a class of grade children taught by 
Miss Sirdefield. Later, classes were organized in which Miss Sirdefield gave the 
girls private instruction in piano.

The Art Department 



Most people take Art 11, because it is a required subject. Did you, however, 
ever hear anyone say that he did not enjoy the twelve weeks spent in the course? 
Oh, perhaps there are a few, but then there are always a few. 

Just think of planning toys and then making them, doesn't it take you back to 
childhood? Now, tell the truth, of course it does. Then after we finish Art 1 1, we 
want another course in which we can enjoy once more our by-gone days, so, we 
choose Art 12, which is "School Handiwork." Oh yes, we make dolls and dress 
them, but even though we are grown up now, we enjoy it. 

Now that we have learned all about making toy dolls, baskets, books, and 
weaving, we need something which will help us to apppreciate good pictures, so we 
enroll in Art 26, or "Art Appreciation." And through this course we get full ap- 
preciation of the famous paintings.

The Art Department — continued 



What shall we do now? Our course in Art 26 is finished. Shall we take 
Art 21, which is freehand work and charcoal work? It doesn't sound very interest- 
ing, I'll admit, but join the class and find out. Yes, each one in the class must 
pose, and then we draw them. Sometimes when they are finished you can recognize 
them and sometimes you cannot, but, however, good or bsd they are, we have done 
our best. 

And last but by far one of the most interesting is "Design", known as Art 22. 
In this we study color to some extent and then we do design work. Some of the 
projects under design are woodblocking, sienciling, leather tooling, making of 
bookends, lamp shades, etc. So we find that the Art Course given in Kent State 
College is one of the most interesting courses although one of the shortest.

Home Economics 



Home Economics today covers a very wide field. The purposes of the various 
phases of Home Economics are practical, scientific, artistic, economic, and sociolog- 
ical. Every girl needs instruction regarding better and more healthful living, and 
training in those practices which will enable her to live her daily life more intelli- 
gently, to rear her children more efficiently. 

The business woman as well as the homemaker is better fitted for life by 
Home Economics. A keener insight and appreciation of the suitability and aesthetic 
points of room furnishings are hers and are valuable even though she has only one 
or two rooms to care for; she can better select her clothing and know how well and 
why it shall serve her needs; she can, more wisely, choose her food, though she 
does not prepare it. 

Home Economics ever looks forward for the purpose of the advancement of 
the welfare, comfort, and happiness of mankind. G. S.

Manual Training Department 

According to James, there are three forms of intelligence: — abstract, mechani- 
cal and social. It is the special aim of manual training to develop the second of 
these. This work should occupy an equal position with English and mathematics 
in our schools. It should not be considered a special subject but a regular subject 
and approximately as much time should be devoted to it as to English and mathe- 
matics. 

It is not given such a place in our schools at present. The main reason for 
this is that most of those who determine educational policies and determine curricula 
have little mechanical intelligence. They have therefore no background which 
would enable them to appreciate its educational value and they fail to realize its 
significance to the vast majority of our peaple who live by doing. 

It is the main aim of the Manual Training Department of Kent State to develop 
in those, now passing thru our institution, such mechanical intelligence as will lead 
them to appreciate the educational value of manual training and will as they later 
become our educational leaders, urge them to give it the place it should have in 
our schools. 

A minor objective of the department is to prepare special teachers of manual 
training who can, under present conditions, so teach the work as to demonstrate its 
value, that it may later be advanced from its position as a side show to a place 
in the big show — education.

New School of School Health, Physical Education and 

Athletics Necessity for the School of Health 

and Physical Education 



Dr. a. O. De Weese 



A growing appreciation and respect for human life has culminated in the last few 
years in a universal public demand for the application of the scientific knowledge available 
for the prolongation of human life and the physical betterment of the race. A survey of 
long neglected conditions showed us that over half of our population died before they 
reached the age of twenty-four, and that a large percent of the remainder went through 
life with physical handicaps which incapacitated and in many cases blighted their life 
activities. On a daily average there are in America 3,250,000 people dangerously sick. 
Our annual death rate is 1,600,000 over one half of which is wholly and easily preventable. 
Near 3,000,000 people are unable to go to their work each morning. Approximately 
1,500,000 of these human individuals suffer this inconvenience and hardship because of our 
ignorance and neglect to apply simple scientific facts. So easily preventable diseases 
holds several million of our people in the slavery of continuous ill health. 

A survey of long neglected conditions in our schools showed that approximately 
70r't of our school children had physical defects which were amendable to treatment, 
and that more babies died in the United States in proportion to the population than in the 
other nations of the world. 

Then came the world war and brought to light the fact that approximately one-half 
of the nation's youth were actually unfit for active military service and that this unfitness 
could have been largely prevented or remedied by proper treatment at the right time. By 
comparison it was brought forcibly before the American public that while we were 
sacrificing 38,000 American young men in the world war, we lost in our American homes 
300,000 babies under one year of age, one half of whom died from preventable causes. 
So that while the Hun was a menace to American life, the ignorance of the American 
mother and the laity in general, the products of our schools, was also deserving of atten- 
tion. 

Historical observation taught that the various nations of people had their greatest 
physical and mental activity following those periods in which they consciously or uncon- 
sciously emphasized physical development. Then sprang up all over America a great 
enthusiasm for physical training and school athletics. These were directed for the most part 
by leaders trained only in athletics without any scientific knowledge of the body as a whole, 
or of the highly specialized field of Education. They were, in many cases, inspired only to 
win athletic honors for their school or to reach certain goals in physical training, and had no 
conception of the relation between the general health and welfare of the individual and his 
physical exercise. The actual physical harm and impariment of the health resulting in 
many instances finally brought about a reaction to this much needed phase of education. 

To meet this condition and at the same time to train real community health teachers, 
leaders and directors in the schools and various communities of America, the more pro- 
gressive states have established in their state educational school systems, schools of school 
health and physical education. The eighty-fifth General Assembly of Ohio authorized 
the establishment of such a school, and Ohio became one of the first states to lead the way 
in this National Educational Activity.

Object of the Course 

The purpose of the course is to prepare men and women to efficiently discharge 
the duties of a Director of school health and physical education. These duties may be 
stated as follows: 

1. To have charge or supervision of the physical examination of pupils and of 
their gymnastic activities. 

2. To have charge of the health education of pupils, and the organization and pro- 
motion of community health activities. 

3. To advise concerning the heating, lighting, ventilation and sanitation of the 
school and community buildings. 

4. To direct playground activities, play and game life of children, mass athletics, 
etc. 

5. To have charge of such special classes as open air schools, nutrition classes, 
cardiac classes, sight saving classes, etc. 

6. To provide health education and recreational training for teachers. 

7. To have charge of evening and other extension work in health education and 
community recreation. 

8. To coach or supervise the coaching of football, baseball, basketball, track and 
field activities, tennis, handball, indoor baseball, swimming, volley ball, soccer, etc. 

Plan of Course 

A broad education with specialized training is provided for in the course. Approxi- 
mately one half of the students time is taken in training the student for his special field, 
School Health and Physical Education. Approximately one fourth of the time is given to 
training the student to teach and acquire a working knowledge of the field of Education, 
and to fundamental cultural subject. The remaining time is given to elective subjects. 
This gives ample times for preparation for the teaching of other high school subjects, 
administrative school work, or to subjects contributing to the entrance of related pro- 
fessions such as Dentistry, Public Health, Public Health Nursing, Social Service and 
Medicine. 

The group of subjects under School Health will familiarize the student with the 
fundamentals of right living, health promotion, supervision and direction of health activi- 
ties in the school from medical examination to the teaching of hygiene, and disease pre- 
vention. The student will be trairied in the recognition of various abnormal body processes, 
which frequently appear during pre-school and school age. Particular study is given to 
the various types of physical defects, retrogressive changes, communicable diseases, and 
to the diseases of childhood, both physical and mental. Special emphasis is placed upon 
the methods of disease control through cooperation with nurses, health departments and 
the home. Due consideration is given to corrective hygiene and physical exercise, and to 
such special classes as open air schools, nutrition classes, cardiac classes, sight saving 
classes, etc. 

The group of subjects under physical education will prepare the students to 
organize and supervise the various activities that come in physical education and athletics, 
to teach the various plays and games and coach with effectiveness the different athletic 
sports.

The New Commercial Department 

L. A. Bu Dahn 



When Kent State announced the opening of a four year commercial course leading 
to a B. S. degree, it acknowledged with the same breath that it is aiming to provide for a 
long neglected need, felt in the high schools not only in northeastern Ohio, but all over 
the state and in the nation at large. 

Statistics gathered in a recent study of American high schools show that more than 
one-third of the entire high school enrollment pursue commercial courses. If this study 
were extended into a survey of the vocations pursued by high school graduates, it would 
be safe to predict that more than two-thirds of these high school graduates sooner or 
later find themselves in some kind of commercial enterprise. 

A study of the commercial curriculum of the average American high school reveals 
the fact that very few of them go beyond offering stenography, typewriting, and book- 
keeping preparation for commercial training. 

A further study into the personnel of high school commercial teachers makes it 
evident that a very small percent of them have had commercial training leading to a college 
degree. The North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools has made it 
imperative that all high school teachers should have college degrees. While this require- 
ment is not altogether enforced, it is very nearly so with regard to teachers of subjects 
outside of commercial courses. In these branches one rarely finds teachers who have 
had more than six months or a years' training in some commercial business college 
beyond high school graduation. What is more startling than ever, one very often finds 
that these commercial teachers command better salaries than other high school teachers 
who hold college degrees. 

With these facts in view, is it any wonder that commercial courses of the average 
high school so often lack in the kind of subject matter that prepares for business; and 
that the teachers lack both in training and vision which should fit them for the organization 
of a proper high school commercial course, as well as teaching, supervising, and admin- 
istering the subject matter of such a course? 

A study of the accompanying outline of the four year course that will be offered by 
Kent State at the opening of the fall term of 1925, will reveal the fact that the course 
not only provides for a maximum of training in the commonly regarded commercial subjects 
of bookkeeping, stenography, and typewriting, but also a very liberal offering in such other 
commercial subjects as should appear in the normal high school commercial course of 
study, viz : Office Practice, Business Practice, Commercial English, Advertising, Commer- 
cial Law. Salesmanship, Transportation. Marketing, Economics, etc. In addition to this, 
the course also provides for a rather liberal amount of instruction in the humanities; and 
further offers electives in the arts and sciences, thus providing opportunities for a broad 
foundation in cultural training. 



[151] 




In as much that teachers are generally required to have a college degree before 
they are eligible to a teaching position in high school, there will be no effort made to offer 
a two year course in commercial work. Kent State is essentially a teachers college, there- 
fore it would not be justified to offer a short course in preparation for commercial 
positions. 

In surveying the field of needs, it is not too much to say that in a short while the 
commercial school of Kent State will be one of the important departments of the college. 
In the event that the state legislature should grant Kent State the privilege of operating as 
an Arts College, there would then be added to the present plan of the commercial course 
a much wider range of subjects in accounting, aiming to prepare students for the C. P. A. 
examinations, in Money and Banking, Economics, Business Management, Transportation, 
and many other allied commercial subjects. 

The present course provides not only for practice teaching in commercial subjects, 
but it also provides for a study of Methods, Supervision, and Administration of Commercial 
Departments in the Cosmopolitan American High School.

was one of the biggest events of the school year at Kent State. 

At 8 o'clock on that evening two plays were given, one "The Pot-Boiler" and the 
other "The Will O' The Wisp". Several vaudeville acts were given. 



WOMEN'S LEAGUE SPECIAL ASSEMBLY 

At a special Assembly on November 4, the Women's League presented as a speaker 
Mrs. H. H. Smith of Fredericksburg, Virginia, who spoke on "Kenmore, a National Shrine". 
Mrs. Smith is the corresponding secretary to the Kenmore Association. All who heard her 
were glad to have a part in Kenmore. 



COLLEGE HEAD SPEAKS OF MISSION 

Among a number of pleasant and profitable occasions initiated by the Y. W. C. A. 
of Kent State Teachers College was a meeting attended by the students of the college and 
addressed by Dr. I. T. Headland of Mt. Union College. Dr. Headland used as the subject 
of his address, "By-Products of Missions." 



LECTURE RECITAL 

Mr. Bentley Ball, noted lecturer and recitalist, gave a lecture recital in Assembly 
on Friday morning, October 3rd. He is well known throughout the country for his programs 
on different types and phases of music. 

His lecture recital was on the folk material of the southern Highlanders. Because 
of the isolation of these people, the songs they sing have even an earlier source than the 
old songs found today in England, Scotland or Wales. The seriousness of their life is 
reflected in their songs, many of which are in the form of ballads, having a sad, pessimistic 
note. Mr. Ball has a very pleasing manner and rendered the selections with grace and 
with elegance of style. Everyone enjoyed the program, because the folk music makes a 
universal appeal. 



MEN'S UNION PARTY 

The Men's Union gave a party to the entire student body on November 15th. Some 
enjoyed dancing to splendid music, while others engaged in cards. Everything was afforded 
to provide for a good time. 



FACULTY "AT HOME" TO STUDENTS 

Moulton Hall presented a most pleasing scene when the Faculty held an "at home" 
to students, November 7. The rooms were most attractively decorated with ferns, palms, 
and chrysanthemums. Music was furnished the entire evening by the Elgin Trio. Everyone 
who attended pronounced the occasion one of the most pleasant of the year. 



A pleasant occasion was afforded to everyone when the Women's League gave their 
annual New Year Ball in Moulton Hall. Miss Mabel Foote, President of the Women's 
League, was Lady New Year and Mr. Evans, President of the Men's Union, took the role 
of Father Time. The hall was attractively decorated and the music was delightful. Every- 
one pronounced it as a success. 



[156] 





That athletics at Kent State College are on the up-grade, that they are playing 
a more and more important part in the activities of the student, and that they will always 
occupy a better and bigger place is now accepted as axiomatic. 

Kent's acquiring of a regular athletic coach and a head of the athletic and public 
health department, backed by a S175,000 gymnasium are sound proof. 

In previous years the cry of students used to be "wait until we get a new gym- 
nasium". That time has arrived, along with the time when campus organizations were 
favoring a full-time coach who would do nothing but devote his energies to building up 
an athletic department. 

While the school lacks sufficient funds to develop its athletic ability to the greatest 
point, it is making lengthy strides towards its goal — an institution where teachers may 
learn from actual experience the art of developing the human body physically and mentally 
through the use of athletics. 

While intra-mural activities have been stinted the past year, they have been more 
than made up by the great number of students who have enrolled in the various student 
athletic endeavors. 

Both football and basketball during the past season saw more candidates repre- 
sented than in any other year. Track is playing a more and more important part, and it is 
hoped that soon Kent State may be able to place a good track team in competition with 
other colleges. 

The one deplorable feature of the summing up, probably is the losing of one 
ideal of the athletic department — that of sports for everyone. However, an intra-mural 
system is in the making and it should be no long time until that hope is realized. 

The time is not far distant when athletes and athletics were unheard of at the 
college, but gradually, and by small degrees a once women's college has been transformed 
into one where men also take an active part in its functions. 

Not ten years ago there were only two men students enrolled. Now there are at 
least one hundred regularly enrolled, most of whom are preparing for a four-year course, 
leading to the B. S. degree in education. 



[157] 





Men are not alone now in their athletic endeavors. The women students are each 
day adding more functions to their program, and are pursuing a course of study that 
wiill train them to be athletic instructors in Ohio graded and high schools. 

Kent State, as an institution, has appreciated the fact that there is a crying demand 
for women and men instructors alike in this field, and are pioneering in their efforts to 
serve Ohio's children. 

Out here in the nation's industrial corridor, amid the smoke and grime of the cities 
there has arisen an institution dedicated to the children of Ohio, and there is no selfish 
motives in its effort to serve.

Girls' Athletics 

By Ruth Mae Shibley 

The most scientific and intelligent study that has ever been given athletics has been 
directed by the National Organization to evolve a game that could be played by girls and 
women safely and that would conform to the physical development of the girl. The 
results of this study are shown in the rules for girls" basketball. 

Moreover, if the game is to be played by the official women's rules, it is obvious 
that it can be coached to develop the full range of possibilities of the game, only by some- 
one who has played by these rules and believes in th;m. The coach and the referee must 
be women. 

In the special physical education department of Kent State, the girls are training 
to be basketball coaches and referees under the efficient direction of Frank N. Harsh, 
Director of Athletics. A little competition has been introduced to make the training more 
interesting and spirited", two teams have been organized under the captaincies of Miss 
Frances Blake and Miss Mabel Walker. The teams made their first appearance in public 
in the role of a preliminary when Kent State College battled with the Davey Tree Institute. 
Competition was as keen and the game as interesting as if two varsity teams of different 
colleges had played. In the future the girls will be called upon to play the preliminaries 
for the home games. 

There are twenty-five giris enrolled In the physical education classes. This depart- 
ment promises big results with the completion of the new gymnasium which will be ready 
for the spring term. 

Track, tennis, and swimming are on the program of "Sports" for the girls for the 
spring and summer terms.

Football 



UNWEPT, UNHONORED AND UNSUNG, the football team of Kent State College battered through 
the 1924 season with no victories. 

The lusty bark of the Silver Fox pack, however, never lost its strength and even though pitted against 
superior odds at each fight, defeat was the last word to be said. 

With a comparatively green squad of about thirty men Coach Frank N. Harsh started preliminary 
practice Wednesday, October 1, and from then until the first game of the season with Indiana, Pa., the 
Silver Fox pack were busy learning the rudiments of the game with very little time for signals and fancy 
work. 

Indiana came, with the Alumni of the Blue and the Gold packing Rockwell field to capacity. Sur- 
prising the Silver Foxes on an array of dazzling passes and terrific line plunges the invading enemy went 
home with a 29 to victory. 

The Ashland game, there, was the second of the season and was lost after a long string of injuries 
had crippled the home team. Holding the Ashland backs well in check the first half, Kent stumbled in the 
final periods and the down-state college won. 

With two defeats and no victories, Hiram College was the next visitor to Rockwell field. The only 
conference game of the season. The pack threw themselves into the fight with a whole-hearted effort to 
tally the first victory. Gallantly outplaying the visitors the first half and with the game in its very grasp 
a lucky break allowed the Hiram college to score a touchdown, repeating again in the final quarter which 
made the score 14 to 0. Kent was defeated. 

As a last attempt of the season to battle back the wave of tough luck Kent State travelled to West 
Virginia Sta^te Normal College at West Liberty. But Kent was the loser and thus the season drew to a 
close with no victories on Kent's side of the ledger. 

But now the season is over. Instead of blaming anyone for the results a Kent State is united 
stronger than ever, greater than before, and the spirit that soothed and sustained the founders lives yet in 
its students and great things yet will be heard of the college who "always lost." M. A. W.

Basketball 



Winning five and losing eight, Kent State college basketball team finished their 
season below par. But the notable accomplishments in these games do not stand out by 
the scores. 

Kent played Western Reserve University of Cleveland two games, one at Cleveland 
and one at Kent, both close games that showed no marked superiority over the Kent college. 

Following the two Cleveland defeats Kent was trounced by Hiram, Slippery Rock, 
and Ashland until they hit their stride. A practice game with the Falls JVl. E. church 
team turned the tide. Kent won in a walk. 

The next game was with Defiance college, in which only six Kent men made the 
trip. The locals were defeated, but only after the down state maulers had tussled four 
periods for the lead. 

Kent's first victory came at Cleveland when the Silver Fox invaded the Cleveland 
Spencerian camp and carried off an illustrious victory. Flushed with the Cleveland victory 
and in the prime of the season the Blue and Gold thrashed completely the Davey Institute 
cagers and ground in a 51-30 score. 

But only a week afterwards the Davey warriors, inspired by the fighting spirit of 
the man they serve, John Davey, made a powerful comeback and in the second game the 
college suffered a 17-15 defeat. 

Following the Davey defeat the Silver Fox was again beaten by Hiram college. The 
rest of the games were college victories. Slippery Rock journeyed to Kent and in a 
marvelous game that was an uproar from start to finish the college lads were sent back 
to Pennsylvania with a 32-31 defeat, evening the score that Slippery Rock held in their 
previous game. 

The last game of the season was played with Cleveland Spencerian business college 
on the Rcosevelt floor and after four overtime sessions the Kent team mastered the visitors 
in a game that ended 41-40. 

All during this time Coach Frank N. Harsh was handicapped with lack of gymnasium 

1 If'l 1 








facilities, but the college five maintained their practices wherever and whenever they could 
and the result of the season is no discredit to either school or team. 

Next year will bring a new era in athletics to Kent State. Wills gymnasium, with a 
valuation of $175,000, room enough for five basketball games and everything in equipment 
possible, combining to form the largest gymnasium in Ohio will be the main feature of 
the new wave of better athletics. 

It is also thought that with an extra increase of new students who will enroll in 
the athletic coaching courses that the athletic department will have more money with which 
to operate. 

Review of the personnel of the Kent State college basketball team. 

TED HUGE, captain 
Ted Huge, who comes from South Euclid, O., was elected captain of the basketball 
game early in the year, and from his election to the end of the season he diligently led 
the college lads, assuming the leadership in all games. Ted, who stands higher than 
anyone else on the squad, won the center's berth by virtue of his three years exper- 
ience. Huge's record of field goals was a record but it was the main stem of every game. 

JOHN SHEDDEN, Rye, N. Y. 

Fresh from a brilliant high school career with additional training from Georgetown 
University, Johnny Sheddon easily led the scoring in every game that he played in. 

Shedden played left forward. He was one of the fastest men that ever tipped a 
ball for the college outfit and should easily rate a job as captain on next year's squad. 

AUGUST PETERKA, Hudson 
August Peterka, Hudson, played both center and forward and did a good job at both. 
Peterka's best qualities were shown at the forward position. Peterka is expected back 
next year which will make his third year at Kent. 

HOWARD SHEPARD, South Euclid 
"Shep," who has been enrolled at Kent before returned this year with his mind 
made up to stay in school and win a berth on the college five. He did this at the first 
of the season, but towards the balance interchanged with guards and forwards alike, 
filling in as handy man. Shepard played his best ball at the forward position. 

GLEN FRANCIS, Martinsburg 

Francis started the season with a handicap which he failed to completely overcome. 
An injured knee, that was sustained in football season was a constant bother, with the 
result that last year's star forward was a substitute player this year. But as the season 
advanced Francis found himself being used more and more at guard and forward until 
at the close he was considered one of the squad. Glen completes his third year in June. 

EDWARD EVANS, Canal Fulton 
^'Eddie" was a sub. He never won a regular berth on the college team, but in 
almost every game it was "Eddie" that was injected into the mess to start the boys on 
their scoring streak. "Eddie" sent into the game was just the same as an insurance 
policy that a score would be made. Evans will not complete his work until next year. 

EUGENE FEELEY, Rye, N. Y. 
"Gene" Feeley was the one consistent guard of the whole outlay of men vieing 
for the position. Coming from the vigorous climate of the New England states "Gene" 
and his chilly breath to enemy forwards were synonyms. Fans interpret his value to 
Kent by saying "no athlete ever filled his place, and none ever will". Feeley is majoring 
in athletic work here, and will complete in two years so Kent will be sure of one athlete 
at least for that time. 

WILLIAM COWAN, South Euclid 
"Cuss" Cowan makes the third member of the squad that was sent by South Euclid. 
Cowan played a guard all season with Feeley, and was equally as good as a running 
mate. Cowan majors in athletics, and will return in September for football. 

BEN SCHROEDER, South Euclid 
The last of South Euclid comes with Ben. Ben was a regular in last year's lineup 
and played the bulk of the games this year. He subbed for Feeley and Cowan. Schroeder 
completes his work in a year. 

Of the irregulars that are left of the team come Herman Chapman, center; 
Walter Kirm, guard; Samuel Pliskin, forward and Raymond Glass, guard. All of these 
men have played over four quarters in college games, but not a sufficient enough time 
to qualify as regulars.

The Honey Bee and You 

The honey bee gathers honey while the getting is good, and stores it up 
for winter use. Little by little each day he accumulates a reserve for the 
time of need. 

There is a lesson here that we should heed. 

It is natural for some people to enjoy today and take no thought of 
tomorrow, but it is bad business. 

Like the honey bee do not use all you make; save part of your earnings 
and build up a reserve in a savings account here.
